3.29/5  rDev -19.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.25

Poured from bottle into a glass.

A: Light, hazy gold with small white head, lots of fine bubbles.

S: Oranges and grapefruit.

T: Not bad - a bit sour and bitter mixed with sweet. Small amount of hops at the finish.

M: Not good. Fizz is strong up front, leaving only citrus and hops taste at end.

O: Not bad, but not great either. Appearance and smell lead me to believe it would be better, but unfortunately not.

Serving type: bottle
